NZCER has been contracted by the Ministry of Education to develop an online tool for schools to support them to explore the extent to which school practices are inclusive of all students. The Inclusive Practices Tools (IPT) will support primary and secondary school leaders to collect data from their school community for the purposes of self-review.
This study is a collaboration between NZCER and the Educational Assessment Research Unit (EARU) of the University of Otago, on contract to the Ministry of Education. A team of NZCER people is involved, with the project leaders listed above. You can find out more on the NMSSA website here.
The aim of NMSSA is to assess and understand student achievement. It shows what New Zealand students know, think, and can do, what they aspire to, and how they are realising their goals. It provides timely information and analysis to the Ministry of Education, the sector and the public on how well the educational system is delivering important educational outcomes.
This research investigates the extent to which Year 4 to 10 students view themselves as capable learners of mathematics, how their views change over time, and how these views are associated with their achievement in mathematics.
This longitudinal NZCER project has tracked the development of a group of learners from when they were in early childhood education, through school and into adulthood. Over the years, its findings have been well used in policy and practice.
